Man accused in Sioux City bar shooting will get mental health evaluation

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A judge has approved a mental health evaluation for a man accused in a Sioux City shooting.

24-year-old Soloman Harris is charged with assault while taking part in a felony and reckless use of a firearm.

He's accused of shooting of 20-year old Natacha Butera in Mac Behrs, a downtown Sioux City bar, on November 18th.

Police say he fired the gun while arguing with another man, but the bullet struck Butera in the arm and chest.

The judge granted a request from Harris's attorney to see if his client is mentally competent to stand trial.

Butera, a foreign exchange student from Rwanda, has since been released from the hospital.
